Genetics: A Laboratory Manual
Students will learn the experimental aspects of genetics through 15 three-hour laboratory exercises with plant and animal organisms. Each exercise consists of background information, a materials list, a step-by-step procedure, and study questions. Learning objectives include an understanding of chromosomes and the physical properties of DNA, digestion by restriction enzymes, methods of DNA extraction, advanced techniques of gene cloning, southern blotting, regulation of gene expression, transmission genetics, meiosis and crossing over, complementation test, molecular markers and mapping, and population genetics. Appendices provide instruction in writing scientific articles and a list of suppliers.
